TheBeerBaron (261) - Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Cloudy dark brown color beige head that fades. Good lacing but quiet carbonation. An admirable look to this beer. Tangerine citrus smell and a malt presence. A complex and textured aroma thats very hard to describe. Sweet malt taste is foremost flavor along with nut. The palate is somewhat heavy and oily. A lack of bold hops leaves this ale unbalanced and inferior to english standard bearers.

WilleLW (260) - Lund, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2012
Dark brown colour. Light flavour of hops and maybe red berries and some caramel. Taste of roasted malts, some hops and some caramel. Almost a vinous feeling which surprises me for this kind of beer. Although a little watery body. Some dark chocolate is there as well.

Excellent head retention; deep, dark color. Roast and chocolate smell. Smooth, even taste. Excellent flavor. Robust, yet easy to drink.

angrybeerman (259) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 16, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2009 Bottle. Was actually brown which I liked as many other brown ales are black. Had a decent head as well. The brown ale had a nice roasted smell. Sweet, malty taste with hints of coffee and caramel. Slightly bitter in the finish but not to bad. A good beer all round.

nramsburg (259) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2010
From a 12oz bottle. Cant believe I havent rated this one yet. Small white head, deep brown. What you need to know about this one vs. any other: more malt with an undertone of mocha. Balance is also phenomenal, as it doesnt veer towards the overly heavy feel that characterizes too many brown ales. Another respectable offering from Brooklyn.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle at home. Ruby brown with almost no head. Faint metallic aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Watery feel with sweet flavour of coffee and cola, rounded off with some bitterness.

dankman (257) - Somewhere in, Ohio, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Pours dark brown with a small long lasting head. Smells like roasted malt with a tad of coffee and cocoa. Tastes like sweet roasted malt with some soy added in. Finish is strong with roasted malt and it lasts a while.

Bailz316 (256) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 16, 2005
Pours a dark brown with beige head. Aroma of sweet but a little bland. Flavor is chocolate, smoke. Roasty. Acidic aftertaste. Finish slightly sweet, slightly bitter.

iratherbe (255) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - MAY 23, 2004
Surprisingly better than expected. Great rich brown coloring, pleasing semi-chocolate yet dry mouthfeel and taste, noticable nut and hops. A beer well done.

bark (255) - Linkping, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2005
Bottle. The colour is wine red with a tint of brown. The pale beige foam forms a finger thick rather compact head.

The smell is strong with fruity notes of sour fruit drops and roasted malt with some sweetness.

The carbonation is very strong with lots of small bubbles that tickled my tongue.

The taste is fruity and a bit sweet with notes of red wine and cherry jam. The aftertaste is dry and hoppy with some bitter notes and a long flavour of red wine and caramel.

A nice blend of a classic English brown ale and American micro-style hops.
